“Training a dog to its full potential is what is owed the dog, not the owner.”
-Bob Murphy, a devoted owner and trainer of Labs
The Value of Great Trainers and Breeders
Choosing a dog as a member of the family or a hunting companion is not something to be taken lightly. There are thousands of dogs in shelters as a result of not truly understanding that this is a decision for a decade or more. Spending the time to determine the right breed of dog for your needs and understanding all that responsibility entails is imperative, not only for you, but more importantly for the dog. That is where the Orvis-Endorsed Breeders and Trainers Program pays its biggest dividends.

The late Bob Murphy, a devoted owner and trainer of Labs once stated, “Training a dog to its full potential is what is owed the dog, not the owner.”
